Yet another reason I want to go to a chiropractor (when I have more money and better health insurance):

  1. I’d be skeptical of this type of study. It’s not published anywhere real, which is worrisome. If it helps you feel better, however, the lack of scientific proof shouldn’t matter!

    True! Yeah I thought it was kind of sketchy, but interesting. I have a feeling that the reason the people’s attention improved was because of reduced pain or increased relaxation or something…

    I have a lower back issue so I want to go to a chiropractor sometime. It would be a nice side-benefit if my attention span improved, too! :)

    The old medical model said that there was only one thing that caused the problem, like all headaches are caused by lack of caffeine. More recently, we know that there are many causes for any condition.

    While I’ve seen these improvement in ADHD patients, it’s certainly not always the case. This should be taken as “hey, there’s something else I should try before I start giving my kid heavy-duty meds.”
